What?!? No Kindle Edition?

In fact, none of the Dope books appear to have a Kindle edition available. You know how impatient we dopers are. How the heck do you expect us to wait and then have to read it in actually book form?!?

I'm curious about this, too. I don't have a Kindle yet, but I've thought about it, and I may get one for Christmas. I've been disapointed at how many book I read that aren't available, though. Is a Kindle edition likely? What does it take (from the publisher and from customers) to get one?

ETA: Sorry, Athena, that I'm not Ed posting an answer to your question!

No Kindle edition is currently contemplated, but I'm sure if we rack up big sales numbers they'll give it some thought.

Can I ask why? From reading the Amazon copy about how to get your book published via Kindle, it seems relatively easy/cheap to set it up. Am I wrong about that?
